Its a 10% reduction. Not 23.9%. Marwaega kya yaar!!This -23.9% decrease in GDP has made our GDP down to 2.59 Trillion dollars.
I mean what the fuck?
Chinese purposely did this to weaken other economies drastically.
How are we going to gain back this GDP? So 5 Trillion dollar economy is going to be a dream only.
Yes we are a very poor country, we must promote ahinsa, peaceful gandhiwadi behavior by slashing defense budget to 0.3% of GDP or $10 billion whichever is lesser.Why not 1 trillion USD defence budget ? paise ki to khadan lagi hai.
When theirs was at 7-8% growth rate earlier they used to add a trillion USD to their economy per year,Yaar
Chinese economy is growing.
I feel Lockdown was useless as it only destroyed our economy.
a reduction of 23.9% in a quarter is more dangerous than a 23.9% reduction in a year.
How are we going to counter china?? This exact question was asked by a journalist to ex navy chief wrt to Chinese Building aircraft carriers who retired recently and he gave beautiful explanation...China is making 4 Aircraft carriers operational by 2030, not only they are more in number than us, but also larger than our existing and planned ones.
Their first aircraft carrier Type 001 is smaller than ours at 43,000 tonnes but their first indigenously built Aircraft carrier Type 002 is a 70,000 tonne STOBAR carrier, their 3rd aircraft carrier under construction is a 85,000 CATOBAR carrier and their 4th aircraft carrier under construction is a 1,00,000 Tonne Nuclear EMALS carrier.
I think we should go for the Russian Shtorm aircraft carrier that they offered us.
but again some problems in ToT will arise.
Our INS Vikramaditya is a 45,400 Tonne STOBAR carrier, IAC-1 INS Vikrant is a 40,000 Tonne aircraft carrier whereas the Supposed IAC-2 INS Vishal is going to be a 65,000 Tonne EMALS Carrier.
How are we going to counter china when her first Indigenous carrier is bigger than our 2nd indigenous carrier? China will project power like hell.
Probably the best option in this scenario is to go for the CATOBAR version of the Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carrier.How are we going to counter china?? This exact question was asked by a journalist to ex navy chief wrt to Chinese Building aircraft carriers who retired recently and he gave beautiful explanation...
His answer was simple IN has an edge in operating aircraft carrier over 4 decades now. Certainly IN has two decade of experience over PLAN in carrier borne operations. Having an aircraft carrier is not an advantage operating the carrier effectively during hostile situations is a challenge which china have never experienced with their carrier. We are 20 years ahead in this field wrt to china navy hence as of now it's not worrying but after 2035-40 things may change. IN needs 3 AC carriers by 2030 he said.
This itself gives an idea how difficult to operate carriers also Chinese are still novice in operating em.
Navy doesn't want another Vikrant or VikramAditya... Navy want glorious super carrier 65k ton atleast if not nuclear carrier to be effective beyond 2050-2060Probably the best option in this scenario is to go for the CATOBAR version of the Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carrier.
The Brits have built 2 STOVL carriers for $4 billion,I think that CATOBAR version would cost $5 billion at best.
Otheriwse, the option of building a IAC-1 copy is always there.
An indigenously designed INS Vishal is anyway going to cost in the ballpark of $5-7 billion"After the projected costs of the CATOBAR system rose to around twice the original estimate, the government announced that it would revert to the original"
That would put a CATOBAR design at somewhere more than £3 billion. If the navy isn't even going to buy a 65000 ton Vishal I don't see why it would buy an even heavier QE-class.
Submarines don't produce much economic benefit as ACs. It works in the war not peaceful time.AC sinkers like submarines and destroyers need more investments than ACs.
Better get those minesweeper ships, our navy isn't balanced at all at this moment. Aircraft carriers should be the last thing in our minds right now. Built as many destroyers and frigates as possible in larger numbers.Considering the present financial situation a third 65,000 tonne aircraft carrier costing billions of dollars is a luxury we cannot afford. The first priority should be
1.Nuclear submarines, both SSBN and SSN in sufficient numbers to complete our
minimum second strike capability. Armed with nuke missiles of sufficient range.
The confrontation on the border with China could take any shape in the future.
Only a robust survivable under sea nuclear weapons capability will make the
Chinese think many times before escalating tensions with India. SSBN"s to carry
and fire the SLBM's and SSN's to protect the SSBN's.
2.Conventional AIP equipped submarines to be a deterrent to the Chinese surface
and subsurface fleet. Preferably having indigenous anti ship missiles along with
Nobody is stating that Aircraft Carriers are not necessary but they will be possible only after our urgent requirements for submarines are met. The US requires large mega sized aircraft carriers because they are needed thousands of kilometres away from their shores. The distance between the US and China is quite large and instead of depending on land bases in China's neighbourhood whose access is not always guaranteed, a CBG provides the US with an independent force projection capability. India is still not in a position to dream of such big power projection capabilities.
The Su30mki armed with the Brahmos missiles can cover the entire Indian Ocean region. For now they will be enough of a deterrent till we can afford big aircraft carriers.
Yes, modern minesweepers are a critical deficiency in our navy. God alone knows what happened to the proposed collaboration with a South Korean ship builder for 12 modern minesweepers.Better get those minesweeper ships, our navy isn't balanced at all at this moment. rAircraft carriers should be the last thing in our minds righte now. Built as many destroyers and frigates as possible in larger numbers.
How do either subs or carriers provide conomic benefit?Submarines don't produce much economic benefit as ACs.
Last time I checked the Soviets never fired AShMs at US carrier groups, so how was this ever Proved?Using destroyers to sink AC was just Soviet's wildest dream during cold war, which proved to be low efficiency.
Uhm, its 40 years old.. laid down in 79 launched in 88.. weighs some 15700 tons (Lima Oscar Lima) and can only operate Harriers ... unless theres some other carrier apart from the Principe De AsturiasSpain may sell there Aircraft carrier.What is possibility for India??
ACs can provide air defense and air strike capability for the surface fleet or land force. It is the core of power projection which is the only thing can protect your economic interest in the local area when you don't have local military base.How do either subs or carriers provide conomic benefit?
In their numerous military drills. Their main role was: getting as much close to US ACs as they can to launch their own anti-ship missiles and cover those cruisers behind them launching more missiles.Last time I checked the Soviets never fired AShMs at US carrier groups, so how was this ever Proved?
